SevenFriday’s latest collection is the S-Series, and it was announced at Baselworld earlier this year. The first S-Series watch is called the S1/01 and it features a square case that resembles that of SevenFriday’s first watch collection, the P-Series (reviewed here). More importantly, the S-Series is arguably SevenFriday’s most legible watch yet, featuring conventional hour and minute hands that are thicker and coated with luminescent material. Following up on the S1/01, Buy Sevenfriday Watch Usa Replica threw us a sequential curve-ball with the S3/01 watch. Now, the SevenFriday S2/01 finally fills that gap. It features similar design cues to its S-brethren, each inspired by a different “industrial” theme, but each with its own design and completely different overall aesthetic.
SevenFriday’s S-Series pays homage to the industrial designs of earlier Sevenfriday Watches M1 Replica watches, and follows similar design themes. The S1/01 is said to have been inspired by clean industries and recycling. It features a translucent nylon surround that even has the recognizable recycling logo molded into it. The S3/01 is in a PVD black case that incorporates a crown guard, and it is all about “industrial engines.” The SevenFriday S2/01, on the other hand, is inspired by the Industrial Revolution and features a rawer and more steampunk look and feel. The S2/01 is decidedly the most vintage-looking of the bunch.
Like the other S-Series watches, the new SevenFriday S2/01 features a 47mm wide case, and here it is in polished stainless steel. It also has an “animation ring” (what SevenFriday calls the ring that surrounds the case) made out of sandblasted PVD antique brass. The antique brass animation ring complements the dial well because the dial has elements that give it a raw industrial look.
Let’s begin with the hour hand which has an antique brass color and the minute hand which has a rhodium color. They are also painted with Super-LumiNova to provide legibility in the dark. Under hardened anti-reflective mineral glass, the partially skeletonized metallic dial also has prominent Côtes de Genève markings and a polished rhodium Sevenfriday Watches India Replica plate. There are also exposed screws throughout the dial.
Adding to the entire industrial look is an opaline dial ring with black minute track markings, along with the seconds display which is indicated using three sandblasted rhodium arrows of varying length and three concentric seconds tracks. Finally, completing the look is the exposed balance wheel at 7 o’clock, which is like the beating heart of the machine. The SevenFriday S2/01 also comes with a vintage-looking padded black leather strap.
Like most other SevenFriday watches, the SevenFriday S2/01 is powered by a Miyota movement, specifically the 82S5. There’s nothing fancy about the 82S5, but it ticks all the boxes insofar as practicality and usability are concerned. It beats at 3Hz and offers a power reserve of 40 hours. It doesn’t hack, but it can be hand-wound, which is useful since this means you can easily set the watch the night before and wind it so that it still has enough power to run in the morning.
The new S2/01 continues SevenFriday’s strong tradition of offering aesthetically interesting watches at a competitive price. The Sevenfriday Watches Replica Malaysia Replica S2/01 has an interesting look, and I’m particularly fond of its running seconds display, which shows a lot of attention to detail. My only complaint is that the watch only has a water-resistance rating of 30m, which would make me a bit nervous about choosing it as an everyday-wear option. The SevenFriday S2/01 is priced at $1,250. sevenfriday.com
Reading the time on many SevenFriday watches can be challenging initially until you adjust to the unusual dial layout and the brand’s propensity for using disks instead of hands on. On the KUKA III version, you get a short orange hand full of Super-LumiNova and a longer moment hand in gun metal grey with a Super-LumiNova-filled tip affixed to some central disk decorated with a matte orange ring layout. At 9 o’clock is the 24-hour disk with day-night indicator, which oddly shows “afternoon” in gun metal gray and “nighttime” in bright orange. This looks somewhat counterintuitive, however the published “D” and “N” indicators onto the disc should help clear up any confusion.The color scheme on the SevenFriday P3/07 KUKA III strikes a middle ground between its predecessors, making a more comfortable use of orange than the P3/04 but showing more restraint than the initial P01/03. The KUKA III is easily the most used of the three due to the use of contrasting white moment signs along the inner bezel, along with white pointers to the tiny moments and 24-hour discs. The outer black silicone “cartoon ring,” as the brand calls it, is grooved in a manner evocative of the gripper extensions on a KUKA robotic arm. This motif is further strengthened with the black contrast stitching at an almost circuit-like pattern on the enclosed orange silicone strap, giving the entire watch a firmly robotics-themed aesthetic.
